You need 10 posts to post pics, it prevents a lot of spam and porn

Just measure the bearing, i'm sure its standard. Then go to

Outer diameter by Inner Diameter by Thickness so a 10x6x2 means a 2mm thick bearing that has a 10mm OD and 6mm OD.

According to this page you need six 5x10x4. You can probably get them locally at a hobby store or order them from or amazon or wherever.

Another fantastic source for rc bearings is AVIDRC.COM. I get all of my peripheral bearings from there. They have some engine bearings, but I prefer to get those from RCBEARINGS.COM.
